    Radiator cooling fan(s).

    I already had it replaced! What else could it be?

    Ok but is it working like it should? That is the only thing to cool the engine when stopped. Ram air at road speed does the cooling. Only other possible cause is the water pump but not likely.

    Probably condenser fan, if not have your radiator checked....water pump would be last resort...doesn't sound like a thermostat.

    Check fan clutch c/o and that should help with your problem.
